Enrico was a charming and knowledgeable tour guide. We were so appreciative of the sights he shared with us. Most memorable was the Jewish ghetto of Venice, the harbor, and the produce/fish market. Grazie mille Enrico!

Gems of Venice away from the crowds!

Natasha led us on a wonderful tour through the less-frequented parts of Venice. We enjoyed learning about the history and daily life of Venetians. The pickup directly across from the train station was incredibly convenient. Our family asked lots of questions and Natasha answered them all, giving us a deeper understanding of the city. Taking a quick water taxi across the Grand Canal and ending with a view of the Rialto Bridge were both highlights! Seeing the bridge from a viewpoint vs. battling the crowds on the bridge was perfect. It was very hot and humid on the day of our tour, but being in the small streets and Natasha guiding us into shade wherever possible made it much more tolerable.

This is an excellent tour. Natasha took us to less visited parts of Venice north of the Grand Canal. She carried an ipad and showed us some images to help us understand things like the construction of bridges and the use of pylons. She was truly an excellent guide. The price is a bargain, too, compared to other tours we had.

Very interesting tour! We visited the Jewish Ghetto, and surrounding area and was so impressed with our guide! He was awesome!! Not a typical tour in that you learned more of history of the area rather than seeing a building, taking pictures then move on. This tour concentrated on "hidden" areas of the city, which was refreshing. Outstanding tour and highly recommend!

The hidden Venice was hidden. You felt you were going from the din of the Rialto Bridge to the quiet of the historic neighborhoods. We alse stopped in the new and old Jewish ghetto which was fascinating.

Our guide, Daniele was delightful. She took us away from the crowds and showed us the “ Real Hidden Venice”. She shared interesting facts about it’s history and about current day to day life. Venice truly is a crazy maze of winding little walkways, canals and bridges. With her overview and introduction we were comfortable wandering on our own the rest of the afternoon - otherwise I think we would have feared leaving the tourist area. That would have been a shame. Daniele also recommended a delightful out of the way place where locals go for lunch. It was fun and delicious, This tour absolutely made the most of our day in Venice. It was relaxing and perfect.

Giovanni did a great job bringing Venice to life with his stories and historical knowledge. We saw beautiful and less traveled areas, which we enjoyed. We were also given many recommendations to guide the rest of our stay. Great experience!
